Maharashtra offers relief to rooftop solar


15 April 2020 |

The Maharashtra regulator, Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC), has made a series of positive announcements for rooftop solar market in the state. It has accepted demand from MSEDCL, a state government owned company and the largest DISCOM in the state, to levy grid usage charges on all new installations over 10 kW capacity but only once total installed capacity in the state exceeds 2,000 MW (current estimate: 810 MW). The level of approved grid usage charges is also much lower at INR 0.72-1.16/ kWh as against punitive levels of INR 3.60-8.76/ kWh sought by MSEDCL. But the consumers would incur banking charges of 7-12% with immediate effect.
